ATI has fired there old Driver crew finally! NOw no more driver problems, well lets hope.
The CATALYST Crew just released IN june new ATI Drivers so far so good. I have a couple ATI cards so far so good. All work with DirectX9 fine no problems.

They have also came out with the Radeon 9700 which is 400mhz designed for Direct x9 and 8xAGP
In the last model will come in time will be the 256MB Version lets hope this thing is equiped with QDR Ram :)
